Feb 01, 2021 - Dec 31, 2021

In 2021 Wave Farm's WGXC 90.7-FM celebrates 10 years of creative, adventurous, experimental, community radio for open ears on the Upper Hudson Valley's FM dial. Join us for a series of celebratory events on-air and in-person throughout the year:

WGXC 90.7-FM, wavefarm.org/listen
Ten years ago, at 2 p.m. on February 26, 2011, with mere minutes to spare, WGXC powered on, transmitting 3,300 watts out to the Upper Hudson Valley on 90.7-FM. A large boisterous group assembled at the Catskill Community Center to celebrate. There, WGXC's first programmers took to the mic to introduce their shows and perform live on-air as part of the first ever WGXC broadcast. Join us ten years later for a very special ceremonious broadcast in honor of this official 10th Anniversary day.
